Beverly Owens

Owens creates images without distinct location markers. These environments are familiar yet distant—seemingly out of reach. Photographs of buildings—the figure—loom large in the foreground. The negative space—the ground—dominates the background and gives breathing room for the figure. This is the era of the GPS, where one’s location can be googled and identified. It is within this framework that Owens’ photographs evoke a critique of technology and collective identity.
